“I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn’t have taken it on in the first place,” Hunnam told Life & Style this past weekend. “When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it’s heartbreaking not to be able to play him. … It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life.”
Hunnam says he’ll be among the first to see Dornan’s fearless take on Christian Grey when “Fifty Shades” opens next February.
“If they invite me to the premiere, I will go and see it there,” Hunnam said. “If not, I’ll go and buy some tickets on opening night.”
